or.............. use the Microsoft Keyboard Layout tool to set up keys to make accents simpler.

Hi Melissa - you need to switch your keyboard to "US International" and then certain key combinations provide the accented letters. It's a little awkward and I find lots of people don't use them in chat, but it is good practice for those of us learning Spanish. Unfortunately it does not seem to work reliably with all applications.

This should help with the actual typing http://www.studyspanish.com/accents/typing.htm

Gustavo is right. Assuming the OP spelled the word correctly, it is vistió, which means he/she/you dressed.

visitió is a conjugation of the verb "visitar"...it is past tense, 3rd person so means he/she/it visited...in dictionaries you only get the infinitive form of the verb...so you say "me llamo melissa" = i call myslef melissa ... which is conjugated to present, 1st person...but in dictionary you won't find "llamo"...just the inifinitive of the verb...which is llamarse = to call oneslef. or you say "tengo 20 años" = i have 20 years (i'm 20)...butin dictionary it won't say "tengo", just the infinitive "tener" = to have
